MIL Birthday

I started out experimenting tonight using my new Essential Glue Pad with some acrylic stamps I hadn't used before. Okay, I've only used my few acrylic stamps like once playing around! LOL! I wanted to use the glue pad with some flock I had using a rick-rac stamp. I didn't remember that the white SU flock would pretty much be clear when actually applied.

In order to see the flock I had to look at the card from the side. I went with it and put a black velvet ribbon between the two rows of flock. I continued to put my card together and after 5-10 minutes I noticed that the flock was coming off. So I brushed it all off and just continued. This is what I ended up with:

I am pretty happy with this. I wanted to use my Once Upon A Time Mat Stack I purchased from Michaels. I kept looking at this lovely paper and finally bit the bullet and bought the 4.5 x 6.5 pack (on sale.) I also used some of my prima stash. Well, I hope she enjoys this card!

Stamps: Sincere Salutations, Curvy Verses; Paper: Bashful Blue, Basic Black, DMWV's Once Upon a Time; Ink: Bashful Blue, Basic Black; Accessories: Giga & Mega Scallop oval punch, Ticket Corner punch, Black Velvet ribbon (from Archivers') and some Primas.
